Just FYI: the other known workaround (which fits some scenarios  
better than inserting ZWSPs) would be to activate hyphenation, and  
use a ZWSP as hyphenation-character... In that case, FOP will  
ultimately always break the words if they don't fit the available space.

Note that you do need the hyphenation patterns from OFFO, in that  
case, as described here:
